A new set of bollards has been installed on a central reservation in Sutton Coldfield to prevent truckers parking there, thus avoiding hazard to motorists and potential damage to the bridge.
Sutton New Hall councillor, David Barrie, led a campaign to get the truckers moved on and was motivated after seeing an accident involving a lorry turning in a road at night leading to a double fatality. He said he and his colleagues were ‘determined that we would not run the risk of this happening here’.
This is the first of a number of changes and improvements in the Minworth area with work due to start on the Asda roundabout next year. Cllr Alex Yip from Sutton New Hall added: “We could have done this work then, but felt it could not wait.”
The Static Bollards supplied by Carpark Barriers Gates & Turnstiles are equally suitable for both ground or surface mount, are highly flexible in most situations and are available in both cast iron and wood versions, which means that customer will be able to choose either strength or cosmetic appearance, depending on the specific circumstances within which the bollard is set to be mounted.
From simple light weight timber bollards for demarcation purposes, separating pedestrians from traffic or for protecting vulnerable points like corners of buildings that could be accidentally hit by vehicles, static bollards are highly versatile and provide a genuine deterrent.
The reliable and affordable Static Bollards from Carpark Barriers Gates & Turnstiles are available in any RAL colour as a special order at low prices, and if you’d like to find out more about them (or have any other query on this topic), then our dedicated product team can answer any question you might have.
